Project Description

This project improves access to the Tanana Lake Recreation Area and to federally-managed lands along the Tanana River. There are significantly more visitors in both summer and winter than the Tanana Lakes Recreation Area amenities can support.  The project construction will address:

  • Construct a new and shorter route via South Lathrop Street.
  • Provide a location for a new entrance station.
  • Construct a connection between Northlake Lane and South Lathrop Street.
  • Expand the swim beach parking lot.
  • Pave South Lathrop and the Boat Launch Parking Areas
  • Install ADA-compliant parking and access.
  • Add new restrooms.
  • Extend power into the park and provide electrical outlets for engine block heaters at the launch ramps.
